  • Hidden treasure that’s worth the stop. Great selection of gem stones and crystals. You can dig for your own opals. Diner has THE BEST fresh Idaho potato fries.

  • It's a mine, rock shop with raw stones and the professionally finished gems, killer restaurant and gas station (probably forgetting a few things to boot) all rolled into one!! Super courteous staff, mostly all family members, and nice and clean facility. The food was top notch delicious fare for a remote mountain stop. If you need gas and are in the area it's the place to stop because the next closest gas is a long way off!
  • Must Stop Place!!! Also a great Destination Experience!!! We were greeted by the door being held open for us to enter, by the owner/staff of the Spencer Opal Mine Cafe. The locals seated at the counter were friendly, chatting with us as we walked by. The gift shop/cafe was clean and beautifully displayed. Our waiter appeared as we sat down at a table with menus, place settings an a genuine smile. The food was delicious and the knowledge shared by the opal owner intriguing and easily understood. Unfortunately his opal rock pile is not open at this time due to the astronomical price increase for the insurance to allow people to dig around for themselves. There is though an ample variety of rocks to dirt, to purchase to fullfil just about any rockhound's desire. Also a vast selection of beautiful handmade jewelry and other wonderful souvenirs to choose from. "Great Coffee", says my dad.
